How to get rid of exhaust fan on the Audi A3
Volkswagen is considering replacing its exhaust fan with a new one, in a bid to keep up with growing emissions from cars, the company has announced.
The announcement was made by the German manufacturer on Monday, when it revealed that it was investing over €3bn (£2.7bn) to upgrade the exhaust fan for the new A3.
VW has also announced plans to buy back some of its diesel cars to meet emissions targets, as part of its efforts to reduce the number of vehicles it burns on a daily basis.
The company has said that the exhaust fans on many of its current models are already far too large, and it has also admitted that it needs to buy more.
The new exhaust fan would help it achieve its emissions goals.
However, it has been revealed that the company is still planning to introduce an electric version of its exhaust fans, which are also being investigated as alternatives to conventional air-conditioning.
The electric exhaust fan is said to be quieter and more efficient than its conventional counterpart, and would offer more flexibility than conventional fans.
But this would be an entirely new design, and not one currently used in other vehicles.
“The new exhaust fans would be a major improvement for the Audi brand and we are planning to put them into production soon,” the company said in a statement.
“As an important step towards achieving our emissions targets and to create a more sustainable future, we will introduce an all-new, electrically powered exhaust fan,” it added.
Volkswagen will also introduce a new engine-only exhaust fan, dubbed the V-Fan, in the upcoming 2019 model year.
This will offer up to three times more noise than a conventional fan, and will use a different type of engine.
The design of the exhaust would be completely different to the existing exhaust fan.
The exhaust fan will also be made of carbon fibre, instead of the plastic used on the current fan.
Volkswagen has said it will invest up to €15bn over the next five years to achieve its targets, but it has said the new exhaust would cost less than €5,000 (£3,600) to produce.
The A3 will become the first VW model to use an electric exhaust system.
VW’s emissions target for the year to 2021 is to reduce its emissions by 5.5 per cent from 2005 levels, but the company’s annual targets for 2020 and 2021 are currently at 17.5 and 18.5 tonnes of CO2e per car, respectively.
That means Volkswagen’s targets for 2030 and 2040 are still a long way off.
